Draft format in 3-man keeper league? Help plz.
12 of us have a 3 man keeper league and we're going into our first year with actual keepers from last year. In prior years we've just done normal random snake drafts.

This year we are struggling with draft format. The draft order is based on last years' record, from worst to best.

The point of contention: do we keep the order snaking, which gives the best teams two picks in a row and forces the worst teams to wait 23 picks before they can bolster their rosters again? Do we do a straight draft and penalize the better teams by making them pick at the end of every round? Keep in mind about 30 of the best players were kept by their owners.

I think the answer is some mix of the two, like a straight draft order the first two rounds and then snaking, or something like that. Few or none of us have done keeper leagues before so any help from experienced keeper players would be welcome.

I'm in the league and you do it how you best see fit. I've seen it done both ways you mention. You can have a set order or a snake. Those really are the only two options. I'm fine with either.

Just snake it. There is way more year-to-year turnaround then you realize.

Let's just do this then:


Tthe worst team will get the 1st pick of Round 1 and 1st pick of Round 2. After the 1st and 2nd rounds are complete, Round 3 will start the snake draft. So, the champion of the league would get the last pick in rounds 1 and 2 and the 1st pick in round 3.

That's a gigantic advantage for teams that finished poorly last year and might even have good keepers. Now their teams are stacked if they had three good players last year.

Not to mention it makes teams out of it late in the season want to tank.

The teams that finished at the top are already stacked. The top team has AD, Morris, and Dez. The 2nd team has Charles, Foster, and RG3.
